Sleeveface: Internet Trend Of People Posing With Old Vinyl Sleeves

New trends often build on old classics, and Sleeveface is no exception. This internet phenomenon revives old vinyls by inviting people to augment any part of their body with record sleeve(s) to create an optical illusion. The resulting funny pictures are then shared with the world online.

You might not have an old record player to listen to your vinyls on, but if you happen to acquire an old vinyl record, a camera of any kind and have a vivid imagination, you can become a part of Sleeveface as well.

Listen To The 600-Year-Old Song Found On A Sinner’s Butt In Hieronymus Bosch’s Painting

Hieronymus Bosch is already renowned for his symbolically grotesque scenes, but this video has found a hilarious little secret in one of his most famous works. Amelia, a blogger and self-described “hard-of-hearing music and information systems double major,” went viral for a video in which she transcribes and records a 600-year-old musical piece found in Bosch’s “Garden of Earthly Delights,” a painting he’d done back in the 15th century. The shocker? The notes were written on a tortured sinner’s butt.

While inspecting the minute details of Bosch’s painting, Amelia and her friend stumbled upon this poor guy depicted in the last panel of the whole triptych, which represents Hell and its various torture methods. The sheet music is clearly inscribed across his backside, making it possibly the oldest butt song in history yet. “I decided to transcribe it into modern notation, assuming the second line of the staff is C, as is common for chants of this era,” – said Amelia.

Used Children’s Toys Turned Into Bizarre Portraits By Freya Jobbins

South Africa-born artist Freya Jobbins collects discarded children’s dolls and toys to create bizarre humanoid assemblages of faces, heads and larger busts.

My work explores the relationship between consumerist fetishism and the emerging recycling culture within the visual arts. Due to our society’s over consumption of plastic children’s toys, the materials I need for my assemblages are all very accessible,” Jobbins explains.

Although some viewers might find these collages disturbing or creepy, the artist says she sees them as her humorous side. The other side of her art is printmaking, which she considers to represent her true voice.

Creative & Different Photography By Raquel Jaramago

I’m a spanish photographer & digital artist based in Madrid.
I’m Technician in Advertising Art by the CENP school of Madrid (2002), where I studied graphic design oriented to advertising and marketing campaigns, as well as analogic photography, which started attract powerfully my attention and want to continue learning more about this artistic technique.

After that, I developed my professional future mainly as 2D Artist for mobile, IOS and pc games, specializing in the “Pixelart” technique, but while I continued developing my personal work with digital art photography, and I discovered that this was really the best way to express myself and everything else surrounds me through a kind of parallel reality.

In 2011 I finished the Master of Expert in fashion and advertising photography by the CES school and the UCM in Madrid, specializing in this kind of photography.
Anyway, I love to make a mix between Fashion & Fantasy Photography, taking the better from both of them, and giving a touch of pictorical or illustration to my images.

My photographic interests: cool pictures, weird, disturbing, intriguing, interesting, dreamy, creative and, above all, beautiful images, capturing the ephemeral moment, the feeling, the attitude and character of the people or concepts to portray.

Sleevefacing… What To Do When Your Vinyl Is Stacked Up At Home (or If You Don’t Own Any).

As a supplement to the latest post about sleevefacing… my brother and I used to do this for hours as kids with our parents’ records like James Taylor, Crystal Gayle and Kenny Rogers. And we still do. But what do you do when you’re out with friends and your stacks of vinyl are all back at home? Or if you’re not lucky enough to have a huge vinyl collection? We created the Sleevefacer iPhone app for this reason. It lets you access your iPod or iPhone library of music, along with top 100 iTunes lists and even your photo library. Once you have an album cover (or photo) you want to use, simply rotate, resize and move the album cover to line everything up just right, then snap a photo. I’m not kidding when I say that this app is addicting… and laughs are guaranteed.
